#6373 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

PHP 5.5 incompatibility

Reported by: ehoanshelt's profile ehoanshelt Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Forums Keywords:


In the file /bp-forums/bbpress/bb-includes/backpress/class.wp-taxonomy.php and /bp-forums/bbpress/bb-includes/backpress/functions.wp-taxonomy.php, the function _pad_term_counts is throwing PHP Fatal Errors.

We found that it has to do with the pass-by reference that has been removed from the PHP 5.5 version.

The code for reference is:

function _pad_term_counts(&$terms, $taxonomy)

This appears not to be a buddypress issue but a Backpress issue which is the core functionality to bbpress. The Backpress trac however does not look supported so I thought I would start here.

Hi ehoanshelt, thank you for getting in touch.

Yes. I am afraid none of the BuddyPress team are able to work on BackPress directly, so the issue does/should be reported on the BackPress trac (its lack of traction notwithstanding). #6376 is another ticket we had very recently which is related to other out-of-date code in BackPress; it's worth reading over that ticket because what John says there, applies here also.
